Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton named All-Stars

The Yankees will have two-thirds of the American League starting field in this year’s All-Star Game, with Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton taking corner spots on either side of Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels.

This will be the first time the Yankees have had two starting All-Star outfielders since Dave Winfield and Ricky Henderson entered the AL in 1988.

The starting lineups for the July 19 game at Dodger Stadium were announced by Major League Baseball on Friday. In addition to the Yankee batters, local clubs will be well represented. Designated forwards Shohei Otani and Trout will represent the Angels in the starting lineup, while outfielder Mookie Betts and shortstop Trea Turner of the Los Angeles Dodgers will start in the NL.

Notably the absence of any players in the Mets’ starting lineup, who were two and a half games behind the Dodgers for an NL-leading record until Thursday, but they will have to wait to see which of their roster will be selected as reserves after after Pete Alonso lost to Paul Goldschmidt of St. Louis Cardinals as an NL starting baseman.

In addition to these 18 members, Commissioner Rob Manfred named both Albert Puyols of St. Louis Cardinals and Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers to their respective All-Star teams as traditional picks. Pujols said this would be his last season while Cabrera could play for another year.

“I’ve always looked up to Albert,” Cabrera told reporters on Friday. “I have always followed his career. He is one of the best strikers I have ever seen in my life. It will be great to be a part of this together.”

Pitchers and benches for the game will be announced on Sunday. The NL will also need to choose a replacement for Harper, who will miss the game after undergoing thumb surgery.
